For more details, see http://www.laundeabbey.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/2013-Programme-Copy.pdf And scroll down to page 21.

I have one more night in London, on the Saturday (October 5) following the retreat.

Finally, on Sunday, October 13, I fly back to Rome, arriving Monday morning
I'd be happy to get together with anyone who might be around, especially the week of the EPSC as I suspect I will be burned out on the sessions by Wednesday or so and looking for an excuse to do something fun...
